Teen’s body recovered from lake

EDINBURG – Authorities today recovered the body of an 18-year-old Amsterdam man who was missing in the Great Sacandaga Lake since Saturday evening.

Sean J. Craig was found about 5 p.m. in about 25 feet of water about 400 feet west of the I Go Inn Restaurant, according to the Saratoga County Sheriff’s Department.

He was pronounced dead at the scene. An autopsy will be done to determine the cause of death, authorities said.

There is no evidence of foul play, and the death is believed to be accidental, authorities said.

The circumstances surrounding the teen’s death and the whereabouts before the incident are under investigation, authorities said.

The teen went missing from his boat, Fulton County Sheriff Richard Giardino said earlier today.

The teen’s boat was found going in circles with no one in it, Giardino said.

The boat was found 50 to 100 yards from a dock near the I Go Inn around 7:45 p.m. Saturday.

More on this story will appear in Monday’s print and online editions.
